Kris Pilcher is a Visual Artist who is In the Present before the Future. Kris creates the unreal, becomes yourself, embraces technology, and includes everything.
“As an urbanite my work has been centered around issues of urban experience. Through a recent residency at the Hambidge Center for the Arts and Creative Sciences I rediscovered a nearly forgotten passionate connection with nature and our place as artistic humans within the beauty of our natural world. The Wilderness Act Performance Series offers an opportunity for that exploration a bit closer to home.”
